The approach to food at Island Lake Lodge is simple; complexity without complication. Organic and traditionally raised foods are prepared with unpretentious flavourings and well-executed techniques. Believing that there should be strong connections between plate, planet, people, and culture, the culinary team are committed to the procurement of ethically raised and enviro-wise products presented in healthy and balanced dishes. The menu focuses on unprocessed, unrefined, whole foods, traditionally prepared, to offer countless flavours, textures and concentrated sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The Rocky Mountain inspired cuisine has been documented in a cookbook from Whitecap publishing, ask at the Lodge to purchase a copy to take home.
